Profile: Sydney Central Business District

No visit to Sydney CBD, in the vibrant heart of the downtown area, would be complete without stopping off to explore one of its several parks. At Hyde Park, you can visit the stunning Archibald fountain and the ANZAC War Memorial, while the Royal Botanic Gardens features an oasis of landscaped gardens and colorful wildlife.

This neighborhood boasts an assortment of soaring skyscrapers such as Sydney Tower, as well as some of Australia’s oldest buildings. Heritage-listed buildings include the historic St Andrew’s Cathedral, built in Gothic Revival style, as well as nearby Sydney Town Hall and the Queen Victoria Building.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Room for improvement, but still nice

    The location was great! Just a few minutes walk within Darling Harbour, a supermarket, shopping etc and not far from Circular Quay either. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel was overall nice and a good place to meet people. Though the mattress wasn't the best and a small lamp at each bed could have been nice...

  • 4.0.Fair

    Too many things didn't work, e.g., tv remote; bed uncomfortable; no soap/hand cleanser; no glass for water; poor water pressure; tap in bathroom too small for sink, i.e., hard to drink water.
